I am one lucky guy. I travel around the world with my wife and get to explore places that most people can only dream of going to. I am one of those ‘live to travel, travel to live’ guys and wouldn’t have it any other way.
We are nomads and I love it.
Along with writing travel stories, I truly am passionate about photography. I view the art of mastering photography as an ever-evolving personal process. I get excited about the possibilities when I step into brand new scenes. I love getting lost and going off the beaten track.
Through photography I have stumbled upon places where I find myself exhilarated, like a child discovering a playground. I love that about photography, if you are really into it you can get drawn in through the viewfinder and have your imagination run wild.
My favorite photographer is Clark Little. He captures views that are truly spectacular and incredibly unique. I am also inspired by my mothers’ photography. She gave me my first film camera and I loved the excitement of not knowing what your images are going to look like before being developed.
I love shooting spontaneously and independently. I enjoy the peace and solitude photography has to offer but I also enjoy the challenges it brings about. I try my best to never say, “ I wish I had my camera with me”…
I hope that my photographs will inspire you, if not to pack a bag and say, “Let’s go traveling!” then hopefully to see the beauty and the contrasts that lie in all aspects of life.
My name is Juan, and together my wife and I are continually Drifting Ashore.
